#1 A New Year

Just for fun 🙂 This is a personal blog where I hope to write about various things that interest me throughout the year. I have no specific content plans, I just want to see what unfolds as the days go by. Carnet, is French for notebook. 365 is the number of days in the year…

2020 Week 38 I lost a week!

I’m writing this post late, a week late in fact. I forgot to write. I don’t know why. Anyway I wanted to do a post for week 38 for continuity sake. On Sunday we went out to meet up with family for lunch at a winery called Old Coast Road Brewery. I forgot to take…

2020 Week 37 Flowers & Houses

I have been looking at houses for quite awhile. Dreaming of buying our own little patch. Up until. now, my searching has just been online. Sometimes I would even look at homes in other countries. Last weekend we went to inspect a house. It was fun! I liked the house but it didn’t give me…

2020 Week 36 Father’s Day

I didn’t have a great a father. I didn’t even have a good father. I’m not alone in this I know. I was not lucky enough to have a good male role model throughout my childhood either. I’m not sad about it. It’s just the way it was. I had an abundance of love from…

2020 Week 35 Not the greatest

I’ve not been feeling my best on and off lately so I have been to my GP and back again for results. The results warrant more testing which I’m in the midst of getting done. I was flying along so well there for a while 🙂 Anyway I’m on to it and being proactive. My…

2020 Week 34 Dreams and stars…

This morning I listened to music while I was getting ready for the day and for a while after that too. We often have music in our house 🙂 My daughter sings and plays her ukulele and it’s the sweetest thing to hear her late in the evening when the house is quiet. It’s soothing…

2020 Week 33 Contentment

This is a gratitude post. I am fortunate to have all my loved ones safe, happy and healthy, together and under one roof. All of my children are here and my heart is full. I am lucky enough that Mr Notebook is home every day after work and has the weekends free. My eldest son…

2020 Week 32 Food, History & Bourdain

Food history has been an interest for me for quite a few years now. I mean what isn’t connected to history? And to food? Come to think of it what isn’t interconnected and intertwined? This interest see’s me diving in very deep at times finding out all sorts of amazing things about people, food and…

2020 Week 31 Cornbread

My mission this week was to try my hand at making some Cornbread. It is much loved in America and is a staple side dish for many people, often seen with collard greens, red beans and rice, and fried chicken. I’ve never tasted it before and so needed to do some research as to how…

2020 Week 29 Bargain!

My daughter and I went for a trip into the city together. We took the train and it was surprisingly full of people. Here in Western Australia we don’t have any community transmission of Covid19 currently, so life feels pretty normal. I still notice everyone social distancing and generally trying to be mindful, which is…
